Fauci told the CNN broadcaster late on Monday that he has served in his position under six different presidents since 1984 and that he was not looking to leave his post.
"I have no intention of leaving. This is an important job … and my goal is to serve the American public, no matter what the administration is," Fauci remarked.
US media outlets have declared Biden the winner of the 2020 US presidential election. Speaking after this announcement, Biden said that he would tackle COVID-19 from a science-based approach, and a new pandemic task force was unveiled by his transition team late on Monday.
